About Mendy

If you're like us, you love the ocean, the mountains, and everything in between. Our home is close to all the activities we love, but far enough away to unwind and enjoy our quiet evenings.

Mendy purchased this apartment in 1992

Why Mendy chose Kona Coast

I have lived on the Big Island for most of my life. I have raised two children here. We love our island and love sharing it with visitors from all over the world.

What makes this apartment unique

Where you stay on vacation shouldn't be the most expensive part of your vacation. Our family loves to travel and we have always traveled on a budget. Vacation rentals are the best way to get the best value for your dollar.

Everything was very good

Nice place to stay... all the needed appliances, clean washroom, free wi-fi, very close to everything. I would recommend Kaya cafeteria in 2 minutes.

Great location! Great host!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 14 nights during March 2016. We really enjoyed our stay and Mendy was very kind to us. The house is spacious, clean, equipped with beach gear, and centrally located. The house stayed cool in temperature, even on hot days. We would recommend this house to anyone who plans to do lots of adventures while on the big island. There are many great local restaurants and stores near the house. Having Kayas coffee cafe up the street was a treat! It's a great way to start each morning! Thank you Mendy!

simple, tropical and convenient

  • 5 of 5

exactly as advertised, lots of space nicely appointed and very private feeling. Hosts were excellent and discrete. Clean, well kept and very secure. (yes the door does lock, not that you really ever need said lock). Location EXACTLY as advertised; quick to kona, minutes to great snorkeling and convenient to local supermarkets and restaurants (rebel kitchen is ono). Would def book again.

A bargain with the nicest owner

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at Mendy's place for ten nights and the location was perfect. The surroundings are quiet, yet it does not take lots of time to drive to both Kona and Two Step. Mendy is very friendly and was the perfect host and took care of everything we needed. Unfortunately her cleaning person had not done a good job prior to our arrival, but this problem was solved by us cleaning the rental and Mendy returning the cleaning fee. Every morning we especially enjoyed the juice made from the oranges of her tree, and had fun watching all the animals - big and small - crossing through her garden. The rental was very well equipped with a large kitchen containing all kinds of household machinery. Thus said, I would not recommend the rental for people that have problems sleeping in a bedroom where both a fan and a dehumidifier have to run 24/7.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! I would like to make it clear to anyone reading this review, the fans and the dehumidifier can be turned of at any time. I always suggest that people run the dehumidifier when they are out because it can get loud.

Great place to stay!

Nice, tucked away place to enjoy but still close to town. Kind caretaker is on site if needed but does not bother your space in the 'ohana.

Great for us

  • 5 of 5

This unit was great for us! Located just south of Kailua-Kona, we stayed for 8 days and were very pleased with the full kitchen as well as the other aspects of this unit. Mendy, the owner, even had beach towels and beach chairs for our use. It was very quiet and secluded; we quickly got used to the morning rooster crows. We loved snorkeling at Two-Step, which is just south of this unit. It was GREAT for this reasonable rental rate; we would love to come back soon!
